Outreach Programs

BDASL is dedicated to bringing the beauty, artistic expression, health benefits and fun of ballroom dancing to the greater St Louis area.  We believe in making this beautiful piece of American culture accessible to the entire community with OUTREACH to schools, libraries, senior centers, arts fairs and more.


BDASL Senior Dance Classes

Through a DOC grant and oversight by Urban Strategies, BDASL teaches weekly ballroom dance classes at four McCormack Baron Senior apartment buildings. BDASL’S successful senior program has enriched the lives of hundreds of seniors in the St Louis area through ballroom dancing to increase flexibility, strength and endurance, to stimulate memory, improve balance and reduce the risk of falls.
